Editor's Note
Temperatures Expected to Remain in Normal Range
Weekly review for August 4 - August 10, 2018


On Thursday, the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) reported that working gas in storage as of Friday, August 3, 2018 was 2,354 BCF. This is an increase of 46 BCF from the previous week. Inventories are currently 671 BCF lower than last year during this same period and 572 BCF below the 5-year average of 2,926 BCF.  

Temperatures are expected to remain in the normal range throughout the 14-day forecast period, setting the stage for a potentially underwhelming close-out to the summer season.

Forward markets increased this week as the PJM West Hub 12 Month curve added 1.2% and the NYMEX natural gas 12-month curve gained 2.8%.      

The following table shows the highest peak loads recorded for the summer through August 10, per PJM’s preliminary estimates:
